Electronic Supplemental Applications
Applications to the program must be done through the AMCAS application service by choosing the Combined Medical Degree/PhD as the program choice. A supplemental application for the College of Medicine is also required. After receiving notification from AMCAS that you have applied, our url will be emailed to you where you can access the combined medical school supplemental and the MD/PhD application which is filled out online and sent electronically. (there is not a separate MD/PhD application). Your AMCAS Identification number is needed to access the supplemental application. An application fee of $70 must be paid before we receive your supplemental application. A credit card must be used to make this payment since it is also done electronically. Instructions are included on the web site of the supplemental application. AMCAS applications must be received in the Student Affairs Admissions Office by November 15. The supplemental application and letters of recommendation must be received by January 15. All letters of recommendation must be submitted directly to AMCAS. More information about electronic submittal of letters of recommendation can be found on the application website. Penn State is participating in this pilot program. Applicants selected for interview will be invited to the College of Medicine on selected MD/PhD interview days. College Interviews are carried out by faculty who are members of or affiliated with the MD/PhD Program. International students are welcome to apply. Separate letters of recommendation are not required for the MD/PhD Program.
